Review Entries for Day Wednesday, April 08, 2009

Following the highly sucessful sale of the Faberge parasol handle for £17,500, another masterpiece from the Faberge workshops is to be offered in our quarterly Fine Sale on the 22nd April 2009.

This time the object to be offered is a pink enamelled gold and silver oval buckle. It is decorated with pink enamel over engine-turning within bright-cut and gadrooned gold bands, the gold rim stamped '56'.


To the back of the buckle there is the Faberge stamp together with the makers mark H.W for Henrik Wigstrom. As the silver mark shows the womans head facing to the right the piece can be dated between 1908 and 1917.


There is also a scratched 17237 which is probably the Faberge inventory number. The enamel buckle measures 68mm long overall. It will be interesting to see exactly how much this Faberge buckle fetches in the forthcoming sale. Thank you to all of you who contacted me regarding the Faberge parasol handle I hope this creates just as much interest.
